Quotes

Riley Jones: Every morning I try to remember that I'm only the second biggest loser to walk Grizzly Hills High. First place goes to the drunk slut who screwed the dead mascot in 1992. But the 90's are history, and so am I.

Refreshing!
1 August 2012 | by (San Antonio, TX) – See all my reviews

This movie, while it is extremely fast paced and may overload many people's brains, is refreshing. I wont lie when the movie starts off I was a little apprehensive, I thought about turning it off but I am glad I stuck with it because it completely turned around. It's one of those that I know and WANT to watch more than once to catch what I missed. It's silly good fun, I wouldn't watch it to be scared or have my mind probed but it was different. I give this title a 8/10 because its way different than horror flicks that have been coming out, it has a great soundtrack, and it was shot beautify. The movie is an extra treat for those born in the 90s because there is a lot of references to 90s culture.
